    Goals for 2014

    So what's everyone looking to accomplish in 2014?

    2013 was kinda of a bust for me competitively but I'm working on correcting some things and making a better show of things next year.

    Sometimes there isn't much more you can do other than be 100% honest with yourself about where you are at and the distance between where you need to be.

    I have really dedicated myself to benching 900 equipped and 600 raw both at 275. It's proven to be a really difficult thing to do but I enjoy the challenge. The stronger you get, the harder and harder you have to work.

    Well, mine are a bit out there I'd say, but dream big right?

    BW = 242. Currently at 284 down from 464.
    Bench = 350 Currently at 320
    Deadlift = 625 Old 1rm is 550 in a meet, I've repped 545 for 3 reps and had more in me, so unknown on true 1RM.
    Squat = 500 Currently 465.

    Wow Mark! Congrats on the bw loss. Thats very respectable.

    Coming down that far from 464 is a huge accomplishment.

    I'm only a few pounds away from a 405lbs Bench, so that is one goal for 2014. As far as Squat and Deads, Im getting closer to 550lbs for each, so Im hoping those fall as well.

    On a side note, Mark! that is an awesome weight loss.

    Great job Mark, if you can do that, I can get my big a$$ under 275. That is a goal of mine as well for 2014. Yeah, and to stay there or less.

    I dream bigger as I get older. I totaled 1500 this year. 1550-1600 is my goal for 2014.

    2013 wasn't all that great for me. I did hit a PR bench and deadlift at my last meet (which i'm happy about), but I failed twice on hitting a PR total. So my goal is to hit a PR total at Raw Unity 7 in February @ 242.

    Other then that, I would like to do the following at @ 242:
    Squat: 700 (without wraps)
    Bench: 460
    Deadlift: 750

    Be able to stay injury free. About a year and a half ago I slightly tore my left glute. This year I ended up pulling the right side of my neck and trap area pretty bad, and I've been having pretty bad hip problems on my left side. Also on top of that I got a new job and wasn't able to train as consistently as I would've liked too and I have dropped 25lbs of bodyweight

    So besides staying injury free in the new year, my goals for 2014 are to
    1. Drop to the 198's
    2. Get my squats back to the 600 range(or at least close to it)
    3. Get my bench back to the mid 400 or higher range
    4. Deadlift over 500
    5. To get back onto the platform(I haven't been able to compete in almost 2 years)

    What kind of enhancement have you taken over the years?
    Weakest person on the forum, and my bench is higher than my squat.

    What are you referring to? Do you mean anabolics?

    Besides technical issues i need to work on, as in squat depth, deadlift lockout, and simply more work on the bench, i'm confident in a 2200+ total @ 242/275 this year.
    2000 or bust

    I'm not the strongest here, but whatever.

    Get back to a 405 squat (currently at 355 after some bad knee injuries)
    405 bench
    585 deadlift
    Get back in the 4.5's in the 40
    Get under 10% BF at 200+
    Compete in my first ever meet
